My fuel pump was leaking oil from the gasket between the pump and engine. I have new gaskets but am curious as to how to install. It appears that the old gaskets installed at the factory had some type of liquid glue or sealant on them. Do I just install the gaskets dry and torque them down or do I need to put some type of sealant on them? Its a version 3 3300.

Disregard I found the answer in the overhaul manual. 

Why don't you share the answer?  :>)



Page 125 of the overhaul manual states this:

• New gaskets must be used when re-fitting the pump. All joints must have 1 face coated with Loctite 515 sealant.
